Hello,
I have been advised to move this audio recording to the non-fiction forum.
The author is: Gilbert K. Chesterton
Title of Work: Heretics
Here is the link to the text: https://www.gutenberg.org/files/470/470-h/470-h.htm#chap13
Below is my audio recording (which has been PL OK, but you may want to have another listen):
https://librivox.org/uploads/knotyouraveragejo/snf067_heretics_chesterton_cjph_128kb.mp3 Time: 09:08

I hope to hear back from you.

Kind regards,
Chad

Hi Chad, I've added your recording to vol. 067 of the SNF Collection.; it is PL OK! :) I did listen & found Chesterton's discussion of nationality and race quite interesting from a USA listener's perspective. I have given your selection the title of the chapter (Celts & Celtophiles), as it seemed more descriptive than the general title of Chesterton's book (Heretics) would have been.

Damn. I should have read the footnotes clearer. Apologies for wasting your time.
I uploaded both via librivox and archive.org directly. I know how to delete from archive.org, and will do so immediately, but not sure how to remove from librivox.
Thank you for your encouragement. I will ensure that I research better next time.
Aaron.

Hey, Aaron, there's no need for you to delete your recording from archive.org! You can, perhaps find an audience there for the recording, and, even if its not technically PD. I doubt anybody is going to complain about it being on archive.org. There are already 2 print copies of Stiner's education essay there, on archive.org. ( If you do keep it on archive.org, however, you might want to edit out the "This is a LibriVox recording" intro; that would be nice.)

As to having uploaded to LibriVox, you don't need to do anything either. Files uploaded to LibriVox go to the in-box of the metacoordinator you used for the upload. There they stay until a solo or a collection is cataloged by that metacoordinator. The MC for SNF is knotyouraveragejo. She depends on me, as BC, to tell her if there is a file we can't use. I will explain your situation to her.

We certainly hope you will record something else for the SNF collection! :)

Thank you again for the advice. I shall upload an edited version to archive.org. I have, this morning, recorded a speech by Kropotkin that both the content and translation are PD and will upload to librivox as soon as have processed, and named it correctly. Thank you again,
Aaron.

I wanted to wash away the shame of the false start I had re: translator's copyright with Stirner and this morning have recorded, hopefully, something that is truly public domain.

Title: The Place of Anarchism in Socialistic Evolution - An Address Given in Paris.
Author: Pierre Kropotkin
Translator: Henry Glasse
Link to Gutenberg text: http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/31104
Link to upload:

Thanks again for your encouragement and instruction.
Aaron. :]

Hi Aaron, Thanks for contributing this address by Kropotkin to vol. 067! :) It was a good idea to pick something from Gutenberg this time! Rest assured, there's no "shame" in making mistakes at LibriVox, if one's intentions are sincere. I think what makes recording for LibriVox a little tricky at first is that all our gaffs get brought to life "right out in public view" on the forum. But, believe me, we all slip, slide, and flop sometimes, and after you realize that you are certainly not the only one to have messed up or goofed, you can relax.

I've given you a spot in the Magic Window. Since this will be your first LibriVox recording, I need to know how you want your name listed in the catalog. You can use your forum name, your real name, or some other name entirely. Also, if you have a non-commercial blog or website you want listed along side your name in the catalog, we need the URL of that too.

I'm going to leave the proof listening of your recording for tomorrow, as it's a long one, and I want to give it my due attention.

Thank you very much.
I'd prefer to be listed as ACR Thornton and I have nothing personal to link to.
Thanks again for instruction and thanks in advance for proof-listening.
You have my love and respect.
Aaron.

Hi Aaron, Thanks for the info about the name you wanted for the catalog. :)

I was able to listen to your recording this morning. Overall, it is well done; your voice is clear at all times, so that anyone listening could follow along easily. You do have a tendency to "let your mind dictate the words" at times. By that, I mean you anticipate what you think the next word or phrase is going to be from context, and then you say something which may or may not be equivalent in meaning to what the author wrote. [Cell phone texting programs employ this strategy; they are a symptom of today's in-a-hurry age, I guess.]

My personal ploy to prevent myself from doing this is to proof listen my own recording "word perfect againt the text in hand" on day one; then put the recording aside for a day. The next day, I proof listen "word perfect against the text" again. This generally catches most of the errors. To be absolutely sure, on day three, before I upload, I listen to the recording again, this time, not with the text in front of me, but as if I were a listener, not the person who did the recording, and sometimes I'll still catch an error.

The SNF collection adheres to "standard prooflistening" so I am only going to ask you to fix the following places, where what you spoke changes the meaning of the text:

page 7, at 14:28 Text reads "not as a feudal castle" You said "federal castle."

page 8, at 17:08 Text reads "So long as the common lands afford abundant pasture" You said "pleasure."

page 13, at 31:16 Text reads ""and this is so generally understood that the repudiation of religions in no way prevents public morality from being maintained, developed, and raised..." You left out words ""understood that the repudiation of religions in no way prevents public morality from being."

page 14, at 35:04 Text reads " A morality which has become instinctive" You said "instructive"

page 15, at 38:08.5 Text reads "and instead of attempting to construct society from top to bottom" You said "and instead" [pause] "attempting to construct." In this instance the lack of the "of" changes the meaning entirely!

Also, there's one place where I'm not sure if it's an error or just a difference in our regional accents. This is on page 13, at 30:57. Text says "you might do so in order to rob me more easily." In Midwest USA speech, the word "rob" rimes with "mob." What I hear is "rub," that is "rob" riming with "tub." But as I say, that may be our different accents.

While you're doing the fixing, you might also cut out the LibriVox intros to Parts II and III; they aren't needed.

And, when you upload your file again, could you please place an underline between your initials and the 128kb in the file name:( ie acrt_128kb). And please be sure to post your file in the thread, so I can put the corrected file in the magic window.

Please, don't take this as an overlong list of edits. For a long first LibriVox recording, you did great! :)

Hi Chad, This recording should have a big appeal for teachers! :) Origami and paper folding in math classes to help visualize concepts is, I am led to understand, big in education today.

There are only two small places in your recording that need a fix, both on page 67. At 3:18.5 the text says "supposing somebody should ask that did not know." You left out the word "know." And at 3:50 the text says "How are the corners (or angles). You said "right angles."

When you upload the fixes, could you please just use one author's name (peabody) in the file name, where you now have "paebodyandmann." The LibriVox catalog can only accept one author per selection. Additional authors can only be mentioned in the notes.
Thanks,

Horner94

Hi Chad, Since you've already uploaded this short selection, I will include it in vol. 067. However, there is officially a limit of 3 selections per reader per volume (see paragraph 2 of the instructions above), so I must ask you to keep in reserve any further contributions you have in mind for the next volume of the NSF. Our dedicated proof listener, Soupy, will PL this for you when he gets back from vacation. Thank you.

Hi Betty B, Thanks for this! :) It is PL OK. I particularly liked the advice "Never slam the oven door while baking, but open and close the door softly." I wonder how Mary Wade thought you could open the oven door 4 times, even softly, to check on the status of a cake, without having the cake fall...

The Boston Cooking School was once the biggie of cooking. I inherited my mother's 1930 Boston Cooking School Cook Book. The first edition was 1896, and on the frontispiece of the 1930 edition, the publisher claims to have sold 1,536,000 copies.
